This book examines all of Jarrell's work, incorporating new research such as previously undiscovered essays and poems. Burt considers both his aesthetic choices and their social contexts, exploring the ways in which Jarrell's efforts and achievements encompassed the concerns of his time, from teen culture to the Cuban Missile Crisis. He also situates the poet-critic among his peers, including Bishop and Arendt.
